Torpedo Factory Art Center "micro-residency" Recap

Torpedo Factory Art Center

In early June I spent two busy weeks working in a studio at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. You may remember my post here about being juried into the Torpedo Factory Artists' Association. I wanted to share a little recap of my time there!

I was in Studio 17, which is longtime artist Betty Grisham's permanent studio.

I worked on 3 large and 3 small canvases while I was there - it was great to take advantage of the large work area and high ceilings.

Being right on the Potomac River, the studio had amazing natural light all day long.

Thanks much to everyone who stopped in to see my work! Working in an open studio is a totally different experience than working alone in an in-home or private studio. Sorry if you awkwardly caught me singing along to my music! :)

Overall I completed 2 large canvases and 3 small canvases, and am finishing up my third large canvas in my home studio. The pieces will be available for purchase on June 28th!
